Imagine making it through a day in heels with no pain. You can’t do it, can you? It seems too unreal. Well Shoe expert and Shoe Are You? author Meghan Cleary swears she has the answer: running your feet under cold water (even if it’s a bathroom sink), putting a little hand lotion on them while they’re still damp, then putting your stilettos back on. “I personally have gotten another four hours out of a pair doing this mid-event,” she said. Just be sure you put your feet back in your shoes damp, not completely wet.
The lotion is supposed to seal in the moisture of the cold water, and lubricate against any sore spots. We’ll be trying this pronto!
